    I pre-ordered at midnight and the payment option I chose was to bill my credit card (rather than put it on my next bill).

    I have been looking at my online banking account several times today and there has still been no charge to my account. Is anyone else seeing this that payed with their bank card?

    Ooooh okay I didn't even think of that. Looks like I will have to watch my spending for the next week and half.

    Not charging a credit card till an item is shipped is pretty standard. They do an Authorization first to make sure the card is valid and had funds available then when shipped they do a capture.

    I chose to have it added to my bill. The footnote to that option said that certain limits apply to the max amount you can defer to your bill, and I vaguely recall someone commenting on how Verizon determines those limits, but I don't recall the specifics. I assume I would have heard upfront if this was going to be a problem. Anyone know how this is determined?

    The max for verizon to bill to account is $250, just talked to them because I used my credit card to place the pre-order and wanted to make sure that it would go through. All I see is $1 charged to my account as pending

    They do the authorization for a $1 and then when it ships they will bill the entire amount.
